Estate Planning for Same-Sex Couples
No one ever expects to have to deal with a medical crisis, nor do they think about securing their partner's financial future if they pass away. We help couples with estate planning documents , including
• Financial powers of attorney and medical powers of attorney
• Advance Directives (Living Wills)
• Appointment of Agents for Disposition of Remains
Our years of experience in helping same sex couples exercise their rights to leave their property to each other much in the way that married couples do will benefit you in case of emergency, or when death occurs.

Houston Probate Lawyers
At Moore & Hunt, we've been working within the probate system for the last 25 years. We have an in-depth knowledge of the processes and the probate code and because of our understanding of same-sex relationships, we know how to apply them correctly so that the rights of same-sex couples and their families are protected.
We have seen what happens when the state has to appoint a guardian for an individual with no legal safety net in place and how that person is stripped of many of his or her rights. In the interest of protecting people from this, we encourage our clients to have a basic plan in place. This will change over the course of a person's life, but in the long run, the expense of having these documents drawn up in advance compared to the expense that can be caused and charged to a person's estate is minimal.
